"That's My King!" Who Causes Love To Abound, Righteousness To Surround, And Is Excellent All Around!

For you His child He has a tremendous affection; Before time He showed this in your loving election; Though there was nothing in you to cause your selection; He loved you the best despite your imperfection; His saying “You're mine!” means you'll never face rejection; Christ faced that on the cross, though He was all perfection; Then conquered death and hell in sovereign resurrection; If you trust in Him and lay down your insurrection; He'll live inside your heart and change your life's direction; So take less looks to self – this deadly introspection; And take more looks to Christ – His love is your protection; He'll make you look like Him – a glorious reflection!
May He cause our love more and more to abound; This happens when our joy in Him is found – when the Christ above all our treasure's crowned; All lesser lovers He'd confound, and all our idols flush till drowned; He did this on that cross was bound; God's wrath and judgment all He downed; He was buried dead, deep in the ground; He rose all powers to astound, and gain for God all praise renowned; His love for us is past profound; He pursues with mercy all around; He's like the heavenly, holy Hound; His praises ever will resound!

That's my King!  I wonder if you know Him today?!

Through Christ alone you're filled with the righteousness fruit; But first by faith put Him on like a suit; His righteousness to you He will impute; Through faith alone you'll receive God's salute so that then you can go and bear much fruit; Christ's life in you for good works is the root; His Spirit works a relentless pursuit of loving deeds towards all without dispute!
If we love with knowledge in all we do; We'll approve the excellent through and through; We should aim for God's best in all we pursue; For what glorifies Him and all that's true; And therefore the greatest One we go to; Is Christ Himself the most excellent Jew; He died to save and make all things new; And rose to give evil what it's due; To banish all bad and what's askew; Everything sad He will undo; With goodness and mercy He will pursue; He's the most excellent I can bring you to!
The glory of God is the prayer's main goal; That's God's first love in the Biblical whole; In all of life it's the heart and soul of all we do it must control; We were created Christ to extol; Above all our loves He is the goal!

That's my King!  That's my King!
